I just got my glasses. How come they don't feel right?

Ever put on a brand new pair of prescription glasses and feel like the floor is tilted? Like your vision in your older glasses was better? Like the world just seems "off"? The good news is that most of the time these experiences are completely normal when wearing a new pair of eyeglasses.

Anytime you get a new pair of eyeglasses or had the lenses changed, even if the prescription stayed the same, you need to allow up to 1-2 weeks to adjust to them.


What are some symptoms you might experience with new glasses?

-eye strain

-distortion

-"fishbowl" effect -- the outer edges of your vision might seem "bent" or "curved"

-depth perception issues - might be difficult to judge how close or far an object is initially


If your symptoms persist after 1-2 weeks or your glasses just are not working, schedule an appointment for a check-up with your prescribing eye doctor. Your glasses should also never cause you any pain or headaches, so if you are experiencing those then please do get seen sooner!
